Oswestry Business Demographics

Oswestry is an ancient market town in north Shropshire, located in The Marches near to the Welsh border with a population of around 17,400. Oswestry has a fantastic range of employment opportunities with 946 businesses having registered offices here and 6,300 people working in the town. 

The three most significant sectors in Oswestry are retail, education and manufacturing, which together account for 41.7% of all employment here. The town’s market, which can be traced back to 1190, and the nearby shopping centre serve both northwest Shropshire and mid-Wales with the largest businesses here being the supermarket giants Sainsbury’s, Asda, Tesco and Morrisons. Eight out of 10 companies based here, however, are private businesses employing fewer than five people.

Although the education sector is one of the largest in Oswestry, there is a trend towards fewer jobs in the public sector while private sector employment is on the increase. 

Oswestry Culture and Social Scene

Oswestry, like surrounding areas, has a vibrant programme of events that run throughout the year to keep local people and visitors entertained. 

The Oswestry Food and Drink Festival is one of the town’s most popular events showcasing the delights that Oswestry and the Borders have to offer. For two days every July, the finest local produce is on offer throughout the town’s streets at market stalls and cafes, along with locally brewed ales and ciders to be found at the Cambrian Heritage Railways’ Beer Festival.

Guided tours of Oswestry run regularly and there are plenty of museums and art galleries to visit including the Oswestry Town Museum, the Willow Gallery, the Qube, and the Cambrian Railway Museum, which also operates train rides and driver experiences as well as special events for occasions such as  Easter and Christmas.

The Oswestry Visitor and Exhibition Centre have a display of Wilfred Owen’s letters written during the First World War and is the starting point for the Wilfred Owen trail through the town. The esteemed war poet is arguably Oswestry’s most famous resident having been born here and to commemorate the centenary of his death in November 2018, there will be a festival dedicated to his work and a statue of him unveiled in the Cae Glas Park. 

Oswestry is also the site for the 3,000-year-old settlement, Old Oswestry Hill Fort. It is one of the best-preserved hill forts in Britain and is considered to have been built and occupied during the Iron Age (800 BC to AD 43), remaining in use for almost 1,000 years.

In addition to its magnificent history, Oswestry also brings a diverse shopping experience for those who like to browse what’s on offer in the town. It is served by both indoor and outdoor markets as well as bookshops, farm shops and independents in and amongst high street names. Oswestry is also famed for its café culture with plenty of coffee shops offering a rest stop and a bite to eat.
